Mine has water accumulation in bottom of refrig.
Drainline is clear-i could put a wire from top to bottom and if i poured water directly into the outlet at top back of unit it ran to tray under the unit.
problem is poor connection where drain from freezer drops into tray at top of refrig unit and then is supposed to go into the black rubber hole at top back of refrig. it is too short or poorly aligned because it still drips. i have put a putty material around it and if it stops i will go back and silicon where the too meet.
One of many problems with this refrgierator. everything is rusting too. shelves, metal edges, you name it.

Sounds like the drain is frozen. Break up the ice and remove as much as you can and use hot water to melt the rest. May need to remove the back panel in the freezer so you can get hot water down the drain until it is clear.

Water leaking from bottom front, ice in bottom of freezer


Your drain line form the evaporator is clogged. Locate the drain under the back and use a wet/dry vacuum to unclogged drain. The drain line can be also blocked by excessive ice buildup from incomplete defrosting. Remove frozen foods and open door to freezer section and remove power and manually defrost unit. Once ice is stopped melting try vacuuming the drain line again. Sometime drain line gets clogged with debris such as garden peas, corn, wrapping and the like. Once drain line is cleared the water and ice on the freezer bottom should stop forming.
Hope this helps

Check the door gasket for a leak. Air entering past the gasket will form ice.

Clogged drain plug


Happens to me too. The drain freezes, freezer floor freezes and then ice starts building up to the point where it forms in the fan area and then the blades hit the fan and it gets very noisy. In my case, the container that is supposed to carry the defrosted water to the drain has a electric wire running underneath and twisting around the drain hole. I believe this wire is supposed to heat up and melt the ice to stop the drain hole from freezing. I believe the heating mechanism has failed in my case and suspect the same for you. Until fixed, this will continue to freeze up every so often. Search for your LG freezer drain heating element or parts.

Ice forming at bottom of freezer


You are very bad. Of course the drain does something. Pour hot water over the ice. Use a sponge to pick up the water when it is not hot and do it again until the drain is clear. I use a Mr. Coffee as a quick source of very hot water.

Ice forming and freezing in the freezer bottom


Need to find out if the refrigerator is going into defrost normally, about every 8 to 10 hours. If it does defrost normally, does the drain inside the freezer panel and under the evaporator coil drain without blockage? Defrosted ice, (water) should go down a drain pipe and into a pan near compressor. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Admiral HMG 62163 water leaking internally & freezing in lower basket


good attempt, its actually a clogged drain thats backing up and your drain water is not able to leave refrig so it falls to bottom of freezer floor and eventually out the door. romve the items from the freezer and take the lower back wall off form inside, directly under the evaporator under all that ice there is a drain hole, youll need to clear that hole of iec( pouring boiling water down until you get a free flow of water then you can reassemble uint problem solved

My Maytag side by side freezer/refrigirator MODEL MSD 2554AR is having ice frozen at the botton of the freezer basket.This later melts and form water on the floor of my kitchen.


Ukoni, the drain tube for the defrost is frozen over or clogged. When the unit goes into defrost the water is running out through the front instead of down the drain tube. You can try to pour some real hot water with a baster to clear the tube. Remove the lower basket and at the bottom of the freezer panel in back is where the drain line is located. Catriver.

Water/ice pools in bottom of freezer


The real problem is that the drain which carries the defrost water away from the coils (and down to the external pan underneath where it should evaporate) has become plugged with ice (from having left the door open thereby icing up the coils and the drain). The problem you have now is that the normal defrost cycle was not designed to melt the ice plug that is blocking the drain. Solution: You have to either (1) if you're handy, you can remove the plastic panel over the coils in the back of the freezer and melt it out with a hair dryer or hot water -- or (2) unplug the unit, leave the doors open and let it melt out by itself. I don't know how long you'd have to wait for (2) to completely melt the ice plug -- I'm guessing at least 24-36 hours to be sure. I did (1) and it took me about 2 hours to remove the freezer bin and door, remove the main drawer slides, remove the internal drawers and their slides, remove the back inside panel, find the ice plug (lower left side of the drip tray under the evap coils), melt it out with hot water from a baster, verify that the drain was clear, reassemble in reverse order. But it worked. Problem completely solved -- no water since. By the way the drip tray was completely full of ice - right after a defrost cycle had completed -- so this problem will never resolve itself without intervention. Bear in mind, the whole cycle COULD happen again if the drawer is left open again and the excess ice builds up on the coils again. This is a design flaw in the unit itself. However, I read about a clever solution to prevent a new ice plug forming as a result of the open door. Just loop a length of 10-12 gauge bare copper wire around the defrost heater element and insert the other end of the wire in the drain hole. Heat conducted through the wire during defrost will clear any ice plug that may form.
